Fuzzy Toasted Marshmellow

Sweater? thrifted from Deja Vu
Plaid button-up? Winners
High-waisted black jeans? h&m
Boots? Modern Vintage, Winners
Clutch? Hilary Radley, StyleSense
Bangle and cuff? UO and gifted

This sweater might as well have been back-combed as it has so much volume! It will go down as another stellar find in The Epic Year of Thrifting 2009. I only wish it had pockets... but what it lacks in lipgloss carrying abilities, it makes up for in warmth, softness and downright amazingness (especially since it's hand knit!).
The pants I have had for years and have worn sporadically as needed. I've never really loved them because I always felt their high-waistedness drew attention to my hipular (not a word but it will be...one day) area. I must have recently over-dosed on Sal's Already Pretty body positivity because this weekend I decided that I loved these pants and the way they made me look. So, I wore the pants three days in a row. Normally I would not disclose that information but I saw one of my sisters-in-law on all three days and I know she reads my blog (waddup 'L'?) so I just wanted to be forthright with my over-wearing. I must say that body positivity over a holiday season filled with inactivity and overeating is an unusual but nice thing...

That sweater is AWESOME, and this has also been a spectacular thrifting year for me, as well. I think you look so good in pants. And your hair--is it different? So pretty!

That sweater is just divine! It looks so warm and cozy and stylish, all at the same time! And I'm loving the word 'hipular' - definitely using it now! Happy New Year!

Love the pants and this entire outfit! That purse is so cute too!

Ha! I know what you mean, I wore my tweed shorts three days in a row about a week ago but posted the pics on non-consecutive days to throw everyone off like that. Sneaky, sneaky, right? ;)

Have a fabulous New Year's, lovely, I wish you and the hubs all the best for 2010!
